2012 PGA Tour Predictions--A look back at the early season

The PGA Tour season has already reached its midpoint.  Although only 1 major has been contested, the season is half over already.  It is time now to look back at the first half of the season in my predictions to see how the season has played out so far.

I will also be updating my predictions for the second half of the season as well later this week so watch for that!
